Swarocean- Man Mor Bani Tanghat

(Recently I have put some posts on Quora blog Swarocean  which I am going to henceforth cross-post here. The blog is about songs which are not very well known but are rare accomplishments in their own rights. Unheard tunes, in different languages, but each make a sound which kick up a familiar feeling somewhere. That the world emanates from you.  That feeling of अहं ब्रह्मास्मिMusic, indeed knows no boundaries.  But close your eyes and feel that the music makes you limitless as well.)

If you have seen the recent movie Ram-Leela (I hope I am not stoned by Hindu Right for this), then you must have heard a Gujrati folk song featured in it called Mor bane tanghat kare. While this version is nice in its own manner with the modern (read intrusive) arrangements, I came across the original, more authentic version of it via a friend which I am posting here.  

I don't know anything about it except that it is about a peacock in rain, so would love it if someone knowledgeable shares some more information about this song.
